LA Deputies Shot In Compton Ambush, Suspect At Large

Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies are fighting for their lives after a Saturday night ambush at a train station in Compton, California.

The officers, a man and a woman, were both shot multiple times after a suspect walked up to their parked patrol car and fired at close range, according to the LA County Sheriffs Department, which tweeted “The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation.”

In a Saturday night news conference, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that the two had graduated from the sheriff’s training academy approximately 14 months ago. The female officer, 31, is the mother of a six-year-old boy, while the other officer is 24-years-old. At least one of them was able to radio for help, after which they were taken to nearby St. Francis Medical Center where they underwent surgery, according to NBC News.

Deputy Morgan Arteaga said the attack was reported about 7 p.m. at a train station in the city of Compton. The sheriff’s department has a unit that patrols Los Angeles Metro trains; it’s also contracted to police that city.

“They are still alive,” Arteaga said.

The Metro Blue Line train station where Deputy Eric Ortiz said the attack took place is near the sheriff’s Compton Station.

The department also tweeted: “They are both still fighting for their lives, so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.” –NBC News

According to the report, the FBI offered to assist the sheriff’s department in the manhunt for the suspect.

This is just a sober reminder it’s a dangerous job,” said Villanueva. “Actions, words have consequence. And our job does not get any easier because people don’t like law enforcement.”

President Trump weighed in following the shooting, tweeting “Animals that must be hit hard!”

Meanwhile, anti-police protesters have reportedly shown up to the hospital where the officers are being treated, with an unconfirmed report that some had attempted to gain entry to the building.

  1. Catch the POS bastard suspect and shoot Him in the head! See how He likes that, the SOB.
    These SOB’s that are willing to harm or kill The Police, should all be shot, literally.
    Where are the Parents or Relatives if these murderous thugs? This is ridiculous that this is happening in our Country!!!

I’m so dam sick of all this bull shit that’s been going on it’s stupid. Every time some colored person who is caught red handed committing a crime and they use deadly force towards the police there’s some dam bull shit temper tantrum thrown like this. This time it has gotten so dam far out of hand it isn’t even funny, and by dam it needs to be put a stop to. ENOUGH YOU SNOT NOSED PUNKS!!!! YOU DUMB LITTLE BASTARDS DON’T LIKE AMERICA!!

    1. Cricket, you left out the DemoNRats and the Media. They support and glorift all of this. Scum like DeBlasio PERMITTING a City sidewalk to be pained with BLM in addition to 5th Avenue. Wat a turd, and then we have the king of turds, Cuomo, threatening our President to bring armed guards when next he comes to NYC. That is a crime to threaten any President or anyone. Thankfully I got out of SWAMP City when I did This is not the city of LauGuardia, Wagner, Beam, DinkinsGuilani, Impeliterri,, Koch Most who are turning over in their graves in disgust, Lindsey, Bloomberg, ODweyer, Just to name a few

  3. Violent protesters caught in the act of attacking innocent bystanders, demolishing business and private property should be shot on site. Do not pass Go do not collect $200 dollars just shoot first ask questions later. If you REALLY want to put a stop to this violence you make life changing consequences to breaking the law. NOT getting arrested, let out of jail on bond and then back on the street. This is emboldening these lawless, soulless criminals because there is an inconvenience to their arrest but NO ultimate consequence. A well placed bullet or two would make other violent protesters use the 2 brain cells they have in their head to possibly rub them together to get the message. Well maybe not, but eventually a bullet may end their protesting days and pushing their commie, marxist agenda. Wear a mask to save lives? Shoot a violent protester to save lives, property, the American way of life and the ability to live free without fear of being killed by a radicalized insane ideologue. Easy choice.
